3.76/5 rDev -2.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
A: crystal clear bright straw yellow. Lots of carbonation.. almost looks like cider or chanpagne. Very tiny trace of a head but the carbonation keeps it from looking very flat. Kin of weird for a saison, but it looks pretty.
S: White grape right off the bat. some apricot, light malt. light funkiness. slight alcohol. rice? A Good smelling saison.
T: Sweet up front and then it dries out gradually. Kind of like a champagne actually, but with malt and very light hops. Apple, white grape, apricot. Some mustiness but not harshly so. Nice tasting.
M: The tang and carbonation really stings the tongue at first but then it leads into a sweetness, and then it dries out. very short lived finish, overall very clean. a complex and fun moutfeel.
O: I don't think the carbonation was obnoxious but I wish I could try it without so much...maybe it would be improved and taste more like beer to me. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it, but I want more out of this beer. Would like to have this for New Years!
